End austerity now - national demonstration

End austerity now - national demonstration

Saturday 20 June 2015 at 12:00-17:00

20 June demoThe People’s Assembly demo on 20 June against austerity is going to be big – we can make it huge! 

There are already large organising meetings for the demo, protests and street stalls taking place around the country – people opposed to the destructive cuts to our public services, local communities and trade union rights that this Tory government is determined to make.

Unite is putting in place our lead Regional leads to build for this demonstration, and this page will be updated with details and information on transport arrangements. There will be Unite transport and local People’s Assembly groups will be organising travel.

Reps and Activists should have 20 June in their diary now and begin organising for their friends, families and work colleagues to attend the demonstration – lets make it huge!
